New Releases in Science Fiction/Fantasy/Paranormal Romance for JAN 11

Here’s the weekly post from my author blog on the new releases I found to be of interest in my three favorite romance genres (which are also the ones I write in!), and related areas such as time travel, steampunk, paranormal cozy romances and more. I do sometimes cover other releases of note in science fiction and fantasy.

As always, I recommend sampling before you buy! I have not read most of the new releases listed (although I always end up one-clicking a bunch as I prepare these posts). I don’t pick up every single new release each week but try to provide a representative subset and lots of choices.

Here’s a teaser for this week’s first two books (jump to the blog to see the approximately 70+ titles featured this week):


He’s a member of the enemy Order, but his dragon staked its claim and he killed a Brother to defend me…Charlie – I’m a scientist. Logic has always gotten me through, but there’s no logic to love. Lusting over the alpha, domineering alien dragon man, sure, makes sense. But instant love? Fated mates? Impossible. Besides, he’s a member of the evil Order. The alien cult who wants to capture the surviving human females and use us for breeding. That’s not love. But I feel what I feel. And when the enormous Order warrior looks at me with eyes like bonfires of desire, I melt. Logic doesn’t matter anymore, only emotion. Tidal waves of emotion that threaten to drown me. Borsyk – I am loyal. My oath is my bond. Breaking it is not something I ever thought to do. My task was to capture a human female and return to the Order. But the moment I see her my oaths no longer matter. Loyalty does not matter. She is all that matters. Her soft curves and delicate, unprotected skin set my hearts racing. She is everything and I will never share her. She is mine. No other male will ever touch her. She is my treasure. I will take her away from every one else and stake my claim. My only loyalty is to her. She will be mine.

OVER THE MOON by S E Anderson

VS Note: Not a romance but an LGBTQ F/F scifi Wizard of Oz retelling.

Ding Dong, the Technowitch is dead. As an illegal clone of the murdered galactic princess, Dora’s face would get her killed the minute she steps off her dull farming moon. She spends her days tinkering with gadgets and gears, with Tau, her kitchen-timer-bot, for company. But when forces close in and threaten her family, her escape attempt lands her deep in the Outer Zone — and on top of the Technowitch of Night, crushing her in the process. Now a fugitive in two solar systems, Dora’s only chance of survival is to find her way to the mysterious Technomage on his Emerald moon. In a place where science has advanced to be indistinguishable from magic, she must accept the help of an unlikely trio: a cryogenically-preserved girl with no memory, an obsolete theme park droid, and a bioengineered beast with a penchant for the dramatic. As Dora realizes there’s more to the princess’s death than what the universe has been told, she must choose — save her family, or risk everything to right a centuries-old wrong.
